Library Reorganization

Program in a Box

My student teacher, Jamie Prince, devised the idea of a Program in a Box.  As there is only one of me and usually around 40 students in the library, it is difficult to run a program and also manage the library, answer questions and check out books.  Thus, the idea of boxes of origami, coloring and puzzles that students can access and work on indedpendantly.  The students are really enjoying them.  From these programs in a box, Jamie created a beautiful mobile of origami and the coloring pages have really fancied up my desk!
